Our Vision

We envision a world where Mongolian Music becomes a tool for cross-cultural exchange and a medium for learning, scholarship, and practice.

Our Mission

We will strengthen relationships between Mongolian and American musical organizations through a series of concerts and educational programs. We aim to broaden the reach of Mongolian music on the international stage, introducing Mongolian modes of creation to audiences in the United States. Through initiatives in Mongolia, we also hope to introduce new career paths, prepare educated audiences, and realize the power of music in personal development among younger generations.
